  • Volunteers Needed

    A Letter From Lanette Oliver
    Dear KCHU Members,
    My Outlook is not working correctly so I cannot send a group email to our members, so I am resorting to our website and Facebook. As many of you know I have a shattered ankle and have had two surgeries and am having a difficult recovery. Unfortunately, this does not stop expenses at KCHU. So, as many of you also know, KCHU will have an online/on-air art auction March 10-14th. FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT ART AUCTION SEE ARTICLE ABOVE. I am in dire need of volunteers to help at KCHU between 8-5 these days (I think it will be busiest between 9:30-4:30). It is easy and requires no training and I or someone else experienced will be there. It is mostly answering the phone for bids and running updates to the booth while I (or someone else) keep Facebook updated. If there are any members out there who are willing to donate some of your valuable time (30 minutes during your lunch hour?) to help with this, please call my cell at 972-835-6039 and let me know when you could help. Everything is greatly appreciated.
    Sincerely,
    Lanette Oliver
    KCHU Development Director

  • United Way of Valdez grant

    KCHU is pleased to announce it is a recipient of a United Way of Valdez grant. This grant will support a 2014 project called “Giving Voice to Promoting Wellness and Self –Sufficiency.” The United Way donation will support program planning, production, and broadcast of a minimum of 12 episodes of the on-air show Coffee Break. As The United Way of Valdez endeavors to support organizations that make lasting, measurable changes in community conditions that improve lives each subsidized show will feature a specific community organization that “promotes wellness and self-sufficiency by providing education, counseling and assistance to individuals working toward self-sufficiency and/or provide enhancement and enrichment opportunities to develop healthy children, families and community.”

    KCHU recognizes that many non-profits in our community provide exceptional services, but as non-profits most of their financial resources go toward programs – with little left over for publicity that would be hugely beneficial to educate the public about the issues they address, their services, recruit volunteers, and let possible donors know about their great work. Through this project KCHU will leverage its greatest resource, the public radio airwaves, to help these non-profits get the publicity they deserve while providing the public with enormous amounts of information regarding important topics, as well as how to access these community support resources.

    While we would like to do as many of these shows as possible, they require a lot of staff time, so realistically we can probably only do twelve and two of those spots have been taken already. If you are with a local non-profit that might meet these requirements and would jump at the opportunity to do a live radio show talking about your organization, please contact Tony Gorman at 835-4671, news@kchu.org  or Lanette Oliver 24/7 at 972-835-6039 development@kchu.org
